Whether dining inside or on the patio you'll have a great experience. The staff is engaging and informative. The food is a wide selection of favorites with some tasty additions. Feta alfresco is a great twist on fried cheese. From sandwiches to entrees we were pleased.

It's funny where you find a great dish. Lobster Rolls are good everywhere in Maine. But when you find a good one in Dunedin....get it. Chunks of lobster in a properly toasted bun. Excellent! Oh and had the chicken and rice soup first....also excellent.

Café Alfresco has a unique and moderately priced breakfast/brunch menu. Inexpensive and delicious Bloody Mary and Mimosa. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. Located in charming downtown Dunedin next to many unique stores.

Friendly and reliable, Cafe Alfresco, situated on the Pinellas Trail, offers high-quality food, a great bar, and amazing desserts. The pasta primavera with crunchy fresh vegetables was perfectly prepared and bountiful. Always a good place to go for a casual dinner.

I've been eating at Café Alfresco for 12 years now, and sadly, it isn't what it used to be. We went for dinner a couple of nights the first week of December with family that was visiting from out of town. I had the chicken marsala--it was so dry and overcooked, and the sauce was not a marsala sauce like... More

I apologize that we did not meet your expectations regarding the Marsala sauce and the split Buttermilk Ranch Chicken. I did not want to respond until the Chef & I went through the recipe for the Marsala Sauce and double checked our Buttermilk fried Chicken from Supply, to recipe, to prep, & finally how it was being prepared by our...

Went there for lunch. Although it was busy, we didn't have to wait. The food was really good and the service was excellent. Will definitely return.

I love the large glassed-in patio that lets you people watch as you dine. Food's consistently very good - this is very popular, and sometimes hard to get in, but worth it if you can!

We stopped in on a Saturday for a late breakfast and I had the quiche with fruit and it was delicious. The service was fast and friendly and it was a clean and bright space. Would definitely go again.

Good variety and good specials. If you get the chance to sit outside on a nice day, it is beautiful under the oak tree. Food is good as is the service.
